STEM:NEXT WAVE 7 – Your Pathway A Residential STEM SCHOOL @ LUMS


Pakistan Innovation Foundation runs the National STEM School™  a unique residential programme that provides unmatched learning opportunities and experiences to some of the best and brightest students carefully selected through a very intense and rigorous process and engages them in hands-on learning through a carefully curated programme of activities and interactions.
Since Oct 2023, STEMx is being offered in partnership with some of the leading high-schools of Pakistan, namely, Beaconhouse, Future World Schools, Cedar School and College, EMS High School, Headstart, and Generation’s. However, a specific number of slots are available for Open Admissions from High School Students around the country. 
As a step towards offering these slots, we have launched  STEM:NEXT WAVE 7 – a series of online talks by eminent scholars from around the world followed by challenging quizzes – and the students’ performance in these will become the basis for their selection in the 8-10-day STEM Programme in Dec/Jan 2024.
